Nashville, TN (August 3, 2007)- Founded in 1970, the Tennessee Environmental Council (TEC) educates and advocates for the protection of Tennessee’s environment and public health. For more than thirty years, TEC has been working daily to protect the environment in Tennessee. TEC’s efforts have been successful in protecting the Great Smoky Mountains, cleaning up the Pigeon River, reducing pollution from TVA’s coal-fired power plants, and preventing degradation of high quality streams and the globally significant Rumbling Falls Cave system.
Whether in one’s community or in the State capitol, TEC speaks for thousands of Tennesseans all across the state. Membership in TEC ensures that those voices are heard and respected every day in public hearings, during legislative debates, and by policy makers.
